Pat White might get another chance at the NFL after all. After reportedly working out for the San Francisco 49ers and coach Jim Harbaugh on Thursday, we've learned that White also will display his wares to the New York Giants.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reported Friday that White plans to work out for the Giants in New Jersey next week. That assumes, of course, White doesn't sign with the 49ers in the meantime (probably a safe assumption).

The arrival of the read-option offense appears to be aiding White's comeback attempt as NFL teams look for a changeup at quarterback. The Giants obviously are set up well with Eli Manning and backup David Carr, but White potentially could fit in as a No. 3 quarterback because of his versatility. It's probably not a great sign for Vince Young that White is getting more interest on the open market at this point. Young also would love to catch on as a mobile backup that can give defenses something to prepare for.
